The Witchy Wolf and the Wendigo  

Discover the truth behind the fiction

What does an immortal Native American shaman do when the grave he’s sworn to watch over for all eternity disappears under urban development?  

The True Beginning

Ten years ago, a reporter for a small-town newspaper heard word of strange dawn and dusk sightings of a wolf-like creature roaming the Wisconsin countryside. Her investigation revealed the local police officials had initially taken these calls lightly, but this had changed when calls began coming from upstanding citizens.

Authorities had determined what these eyewitnesses had actually seen was a lone wolf broken off from a pack running in the wilds of northern Wisconsin. Young male wolves seeking to start a new pack are known to strike off on their own. Leaving the vast stretches of wooded landscape, they might travel one hundred miles in a day. It seemed likely. However, the witnesses were adamant that what they’d seen had been no ordinary wolf. This wolf walked like a man.

Intrigued, the reporter collected the stories. To her surprise, other witnesses came forward telling of sightings that they’d never reported. In fact, some eyewitness accounts had occurred more than seventy years prior, the details only whispered to relatives who were sworn to secrecy lest friends and neighbors think heavy drinking was involved. These stories she also collected, for she knew hushed secrecy was not a direction fame-seekers usually take.

More curious now, the reporter deepened her investigation and uncovered another bizarre detail: the sightings were mentioned in ancient oral traditions of the Native Americans in the region. In those tales, dog men or witchy wolves looked after burial mounds in much the same way jackal-headed Anubis guarded the tombs of ancient Egypt. And even more bizarre, early French explorers knew of them too. They called these wolf-men the loup-garou.

  4. You have me intrigued; I want to know more. Thanks for sharing with us as well as for the beautiful giveaway. michelle_willms at yahoo dot com

  5. I like using legend or bits of truth in stories. I thought a loup-garou was a curse of evil. At least it has been in a couple of stories I've read. But I'll never know, I'm city girl.

  6. Wow! I love reading about urban legends like this. I'll be spending some time on Google tonight! :) Thanks for sharing and for the giveaway! prettylittlepages[at]gmail[dot]com

  7. I read a lot of paranormal romance and love anything based on Urban Legends. I always wonder if they are true. To be honest I think there has to be at least a little truth in them for them to exist in the first place.

  8. I like the earrings and the books sounds interesting.
